Dec 31, 2008

There's enough external space for two USB ports in the expresscard 34 slot. Is there a card that has two USB ports and is flush with the edge of the laptop? All I can find are dual stacked ones that stick out like this:

MacBook Pro :: All In One ExpressCard / 34 Card Reader?

Aug 4, 2009

I used to do DSLR photography with CF, but fell out of love with it and sold it, so now it's back to regular old SD for my point and shoot. I'm looking for a card reader that obviously supports SD, but I'd like some type of all-in-one so I can throw most anything at it. I'd also like it to be flush with the computer when inserted.

MacBook Pro :: Dual ESATA RAID Connection For Stripped Array Would Be Limited And Expresscard

Oct 28, 2009

The MBP has one expresscard slot. So if you use an eSata adapter (even if it has dual eSATA ports) it would only have one eSATA channel And that would be limited further by the express card slot and more still by the type of card (make, model, etc..). My question is: with Barefeats claiming even the best eSATA card for a MBP being 200MB/s (even if you claim less) using a dual eSATA RAID connection for a stripped array would be limited to 100MB/s per port. Is this correct? Because I'm trying to understand this to see if it's worth building a RAID setup for my MBP when I'm home.

I've asked this numorous times and get helpful advice but not addressng this specific and fundamental fact. I am not interested in FW800 because I want the fastest I can get but want it to make sense. I would also reask my other questions about my situation but this question comes first.

MacBook Pro :: Expresscard Memory Card Reader - Starting To Sleep

May 4, 2009

that doesn't cause sleep issues? I just bought a Startech 12-in-1 because it said it was mac compatible and couldn't find any reports of interfering with sleep, and yet on my 2009 MBP it does the apparently usual trick of starting to sleep then blipping the super drive and waking up again asking for a password. Are there cards out there that work flawlessly, or is it just a problem with the expresscard slot as a whole?

Hardware :: Expresscard 34 - SDHC Card Reader

Aug 20, 2009

I really need to get hold of an Expresscard 34 - SDHC Card Reader for my MacBook Pro 15" late 2008. My Mid 2009 MBP has it all built in which is great. I have had a look on the net and they seem scarce. All of my SD cards are over 2GB in size, mostly 8GB so I need it to support SDHC. I would also love it to fit flush with the MBP and maybe be grey in colour! Please can someone help and let me know what model to 'google'

MacBook :: Lid Wont Flush With Bottom Case

Nov 18, 2009

So I bought a refurb nvidia White MacBook a couple weeks ago and one of the problems I have noticed is that the screen is not flush with the bottom case when closed. The problem is worse on the right side than the left (near the indicator light).

I know that with refurbs you risk getting a slightly less than perfect computer. However, I don't want this problem to get worse. When I first got it I didn't really care but now I'm thinking of the future and of the "what if it gets worse" scenario where I take it in and they think I physically damaged it by accident.

MacBook :: Dual External Monitors With Graphics Card

Dec 7, 2008

Searched and only found info on using a single external monitor, is it possible to run two off of a macbook (not pro) with some sort of external graphics card? It would be outputting to two 1680x1050 monitors. Currently have it with the single one and don't wanna just let my other monitor go to waste (use it for 360 so its off most of the time).

MacBook :: Bottom Battery/Hd Panel Wont Flush Since Installing Ram

I'm having problem, since I installed ram there is a slight "raise" to the hd/battery door on my aluminum macbook.

It closes but it appears just a hair higher then rest so if you run fingers from back to base you feel the part.

Is this normal? did I perhaps bend my base somehow?

OS X :: Best Graphics Card For PMG5 Dual 1.8?

Jun 2, 2009

Further to my other thread here I would specifically like to ask what would be the best graphics card for my ailing PMG5 Dual 1.8?

I believe my ATI X800XT has died and I may need to get a new card but finding one that will work in my aging machine is proving difficult. There is a slim possibility its the monitor that s the problem (I will be testing that tonight).

Ideas, links to and any information regarding GPUs for a PMG5 would be appreciated. I believe it would need to be AGP (Not PCI-E), is that correct?

IMac PPC :: Flush Hard Drive Of All Info But Keep The OS?

May 21, 2012

I've got a very old iMac PowerPC G4 that I've been wanting to get rid of for a while. It's got 384 MB of RAM and a 700Mhz Processor, along with what I believe is a 50Gb Hard Drive (I haven't found a way to check for sure). It's running Mac OS X 10.2.8. So here's my question. Is there a way to totally flush the hard drive (or reformat it) to get rid of any sensitive data, but then be able to install or keep the OS files and get it running again?

Hardware :: Dual Video Card Effectiveness?

Oct 14, 2008

I originally posted this in the MacBook Pro thread, but it got lost in a discussion of glossy screens.

I have a question about the dual video cards. In terms of outright effectiveness (when plugged in), is a 256 mb dual video card setup (like that on the new 2.4 GHz MacBook Pro) equivalent to a 256 mb single video card, or a 512 mb single video card?

For example, for the upcoming game Starcraft II, specifications are a 256 mb NVidia card as "minimum," and a 512 mb as "recommended." These ratings are for a single video card. Would the base MacBookPro with dual cards rated at 256 mb be equivalent to the "minimum" or "recommended"?

OS X :: PM G5 Dual 2.5 Ghz Won't Boot With Video Card Installed

Aug 5, 2010

So the other day I came home to find my powermac g5 frozen with the fans going crazy. After a hard reset the machine would no longer boot any further than the grey apple (kernel) stage. After pulling the video card the machine would boot up and I could log in using remote desktop from my laptop.

The machine ran that way for a couple of days until I got a new video card. When I put the new video card in the machine would not boot again.(The new card is exactly the same one as the old one)(ATI Radeon X800 XT mac edition).

After pulling the card the machine still wouldn't boot (exact same behavior as with the card) until I let it sit unplugged for 20 minutes or so. Also when it's not booting I can see that a little red light comes on on the logic board behind the cpu's.

Anyways I'm thinking it may be a power supply issue but if any experts wanna help me out with some advice I'd be very grateful.....


Well Today I tried using a pci video card from a g5 xserve and it exhibited the same behavior so now I know it's not the agp slot.
When it has the cards in it won't do anything except make the bong and the fans come on and then after a minute or so a red light comes on behind the processor and the fans start revving up super loud.

At first it would display up till the grey apple stage of the boot sequence and then hang.Now the display does not come on at all. When it is doing this the machine will not respond to any keystrokes etc.

When I pull the cards out all is normal and I can boot into target disk ,safe boot,whatever except I need to connect to it via remote desktop to see anything. Like this the machine is stable and will run normally. I also tried disconnecting the optical drive and hard drives and swapping the ram to see if that helped but it didn't. Of course I have reset Pram and the pmu also. Is the logic board toast? I can't run any hardware test or asd's with no video to see if there are any errors...

PowerPC :: Need New Video Card On Dual 1Ghz G4

Nov 10, 2010

my video card went out on one of my G4 towers. [URL] The card that was in it was an Nvidia GeForce 2 MX and it ran Leopard 10.5.8 pretty nicely. I figured I might as well get a better card and see if it runs smoother. Can I put an Nvidia GeForce 4 MX in, or do I even want to? I want a good video card, preferably with an ADC connector as I still use my original monitor.

PowerPC :: Graphics Card For PM G5 Dual 2 GHz - DVI Screens?

Apr 16, 2008

All this talk of 8800GT's on the Mac Pros is putting me in the mood for upgrading the 64mb ATI 9600 in my stock PM g5 dual 2 GHz.I have an old Formac Oxygen ADC monitor (used as one screen of my dual head system) but the ADC connector on the graphics card seems to be dead, and everytime I plug the monitor in to the port, the Mac just keeps 'tripping' out and won't power up - almost like something is shorting out.As a result, I'm stuck to using just the DVI port (1 screen is so limiting after being used to 2!!), connected to an ancient VGA monitor. I really miss having a dual screen set-up, and this is another reason why I would like to upgrade the card. would be good to still be able to use my ADC monitor, but I guess only the older, low spec cards had these, and I'm probably gonna have to ditch the monitor and get a couple of DVI screens.

Mac :: Mac Pro First Generation Graphics Card - Dual External Drive

Oct 5, 2008

After reading through several pages of post's on here I am still at a stand still on upgrading my original macpro 2.66ghz quad core. The reason I am upgrading the stock card is I cant handle the grainy look on my photos after using my same moniter with my new macbook pro. Also I am going to be using my bootcamp vista side to play bluray and hd dvds. I recently purchased the new buffalo dual external drive but the images are blury and after a hd video test my graphics card failed misserably. Can someone point me in the right direction. I want to spend around 275-300 shipped. My lcd display supports hdmi and all recent standards.

Mac Pro :: Dual Graphics Card - Better Performance When Playing Games?

Feb 27, 2009

I have a 2 x 2GHz Dual Core Intel Mac Pro, with 9GB of DDR2 RAM and 2 Nvidia GeForce 7300 GT graphic cards each running a Samsung 24 inch screen. I recently bought Call of Duty 4 and found that the game runs terribly on anything higher then around medium sort of settings. I know the 7300 Graphic cards aren't the best for gaming, but they have done the job for me perfectly until now. I'm a photographer so I calibrate my screens with a Spyder and run a separate colour profile through each video card per screen, and its always calibrated perfectly.

I'm just curious if there is any actual performance advantage of having 2 video cards other then running a separate colour profile through each card? So for example, If I'm playing call of duty and only 1 screen is displaying information, does the other card just sit there, or does it jump on board and process information for the game being played? Because I would have thought having 2 7300's would somewhat give better performance during gaming then just the one?

PowerPC :: Screen Distorting - Possible Dead Video Card - Dual 2.7 G5?

Oct 25, 2009

I've had my Dual 2.7 G5 since early 2005. It has been a great computer for me over the years. Noisy as hell, but great. A month ago my screen started to distort every now and then (see pics below). The computer would freeze when the screen distorted. Then when I would reboot, the distortion and artifacting would occur even at the grey boot up screen and lock up. With enough reboots it would finally get back to the desktop and be fine for a few days. This no longer works anymore. I haven't successfully booted the computer in over 2 weeks. After the distorted grey boot screen it will go black and all you see is the artifacts, never getting to the desktop. Is this a dead video card? I'm running the stock AGP Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT. If this is a dead video card, do you have any suggestions for the best AGP replacement. I'm looking for something powerful. All I'm finding are very pricey 256mb cards. I'm willing to pay for a powerful card.

Hardware :: Finding A Dual ESATA Express Card That Works In Snow Leopard

Oct 17, 2009

The past few months I've made threads asking about eSata express cards and external storage and have received useful information. However, I've always neglected to ask this obvious and direct question. I've been recommended a few cards, one from OWC always comes up. But I never bothered to ask about "dual" versions because I thought I'd be able to find it on my own.

After weeks of casually looking around I wasted a few hours yesterday hard core searching online. I really need a storage solution for my exploding cache of photos and video that's been stockpiling and needs editing.

Perhaps FW800 or another interface could be a better solutions. But when I choose my new MBP 17" a few months ago I specifically kept the fact it retained the express card slot in mind because of it's higher transfer rates.

I'd get 1 TB but I'm thinking realistically I need 2+ TB of storage... and also I think I need to finally get my rear in gear about redundancy. I use Time Machine with an external FW400 HDD and back up my music separately there too but want to keep in mind future space should have redundancy in mind.
